Non business customer obtain PanOS downloads?

We use two PaloAlto PA-220 firewalls at my work place, and I have been so amazingly impressed   by the GUI interface and all the reporting tools on PA devices (especially the  Application Command Center ), I was considering piking up a 2nd hand PaloAlto PA-820 or PA-850 from eBay and using it at home with my existing Cisco SG-350X-24P Switch.

Basically I want the ACC feature at home and the ability to "firewall" on the   application level that my current Draytek router does not give me.

 

However I am  concerned about the following:

 

1) As a non business customer at home, will I be able to obtain PanOS downloads? I have already seen I can't register with my gmail address, not that is a direct issue for me.

 

2) How much would this cost if possible? I don't mind paying if it is reasonable.

 

 

Regards: Elliott.

2nd hand devices can be recertified and licenced so you get all the goodies you need

A pa220 is relatively cheap to run at home but a 800 may be a little pricey

Thanks, the issue with the PA-220 for me though is it does not have gigabit   firewall throughput.

 

Do you have to take out a support contract to access downloads, or can you simply signup  and pay to access PanOS downloads?

 

How much would PanOS downloads cost for the PA-820 per year roughly?

A support contract is the bare minimum to get access to downloads. They cover the software license 

You'll need to ask a quote from your sales guys, I don't know what pricing you're looking at for a 800
